'Captive State' is an original science fiction story set in a Chicago neighborhood a decade after the extraterrestrial occupation in which it joins this authoritarian society. The film explores both perspectives of the conflict: those who decided to collaborate with the newly arrived aliens and the dissidents who faced the invasion. A film that exploits the techniques of cinematographic language as a way to create a science fiction scenario that sheds light on the state of surveillance in which we find ourselves, the threats to civil liberties and the role of dissidence within an authoritarian society. A utopia, ironic and spatial. Rupert Wyatt ('The Origin of the Planet of the Apes') and John Goodman have come together to produce 'Captive State' with a guide created with Wyatt's screenwriter and wife, Erica Beeney.
